  1. Thank you for your reply and wisdom on this. It is a 2wd. I did not reprogram. Just thew them on. Claim was not denied. But moving forward of it going out again, then I’m SOL. So to avoid that, I went back to stock, so I will still have the warranty as long as it’s all oem.
  2. Hello all. I own an 18 Silverado 1500 LT , double cab, 6’6” box, 6 spd transmission, I have opted to put 26” status alloy empire wheels with tire size of 305/26/30. Stock transmission gave out. Stock Transmission went out. They said torque converter and pump went out then everything else went with it. Was able to replace the entire unit with a remanufactured from GM. 1 month later, back to the shop (dealer). They covered the repairs because it was under warranty but if it goes out again they won’t because they believe it is the rims causing the trouble. However they will cover if it goes out with stock wheels. Which I will be putting back on. Has anyone else experienced issues with this type of truck and 26” wheels? I did research the “Unsprung weight” makes some sense, however only the transmission gave out, not my drive shaft, drive shaft knuckles, diff, just the goofy transmission which I know the 8 speed has had their share of ongoing things. How is it that a truck that is capable of towing 9k lbs has issues with no load on 26” rims. Pulling a payload in the bed of the truck and pulling a trailer should still have the same effect. If I can’t tow anything with the truck, then what is the point of a truck. I have went back to stock rims to see what would happen. Anyone with info ,thought , something sketched on a cocktail napkin would be greatly appreciated. I do thank you all for your time on this. I have attached the service ticket to this post.

  4. I have a 2018 4.3..6 speed. Been seeing that the truck didnt want to know where it wanted to be with gear, also noticed a slight slip between 1-2. Didnt pay much attention. Took a trip to Georgia from south fla, it did fine on the way up but when I got there from 1/2 fine, then jumped from what felt to 3rd then back to 3rd. Felt the truck was super heavy and dragging, saw temps up to 230-260. Came back home , drove. Was super bad. Gears will not fall into place from 2-3-4. Revs supper high about 3-4.5 rpm but will never hit 4th. Only drove about 10/13 minutes, trans fluid smelled burnt, I think the gears and clutch plates are going only 65k miles. Wtf. Taking it in to see what’s the deal.
